: good morning, charlie and norah. top white house official told us the lines of communication remain open between president obama and house speaker john boehner but no one is using them. the president spoke yesterday about the contours of a grand bargain and said on a budget deal, america is tantalizingly close to victory. >> i'm going to reach out to all the leaders involved over the next couple of days and find out what is it that's holding this thing up. >> reporter: mr. obama said he trusts boehner and understands many republicans don't like dealing with him. just this once the president said, get over it. >> they've got to take me out of it and think about their voters. >> reporter: while the president was chatty boehner devoted only 52 seconds to the still emerging gop strategy of voting to increase income taxes on households earning $1 million or more. >> the house will pass legislation to make permanent tax relief for nearly every american, and then the president will have a decision to make. he can call on senate democrats to pass that bill or he can be r
, thank you. wyoming senator john barrassow is with us. >> thank you for having me. >> if there's a deal today, why would you vote to extend tax cuts if there are no new spending cuts? >> that's the exact thing. the real problem is spending. if you want to raise taxes as the president promised in the campaign he wanted to do that, it was to pay down on the deficit. there's no evidence of any of that and that is a major sticking point. so the democrats are divided on tax rates, on the death tax and taxes on small business and the republicans are holding firm that you actually have to deal with the number one problem in our nation, which is the spending, our debt. >> so, senator, the senate is reconvening this morning. how close are we actually to some kind of a deal here? >> i'm hoping we get an arrangement and an agreement because americans deserve certainty. what we ought to do is put a bill on the floor and let people offer amendments and vote on them. we shouldn't be here waiting for people to cut deals in back rooms. the american people ought to be able to watch the discussion and th
